Tofu, a favorite protein source for vegetarians and vegans everywhere, is also one of my favorite to create recipes with. It’s simple to find in any grocery store, inexpensive, and easy to cook once you learn how.
Tofu is a high protein, low fat food, and an excellent addition to any healthy diet as an alternative to meat and some dairy products.
Tofu is mild in flavor, and that makes it so versatile and adaptable to many different types of dishes – tofu recipes cover everything from breakfast to dinner, and sweet to savory.
So much is possible with Tofu!
Made from soybeans, tofu has been enjoyed in Asia for over 2000 years and is a staple in many Asian countries still today.
In the western world, tofu gained popularity in the middle of the 20th century and has remained popular ever since.
Here’s a little history tidbit for you: It’s said that Benjamin Franklin was the first to send soybeans to America for planting. He sent them to a botanist friend with a letter about a “special cheese” he had that was made from them.
